For designer Stefan Bishop, the inspiration for his modern art sculptural furnishings strikes when he’s in his cavernous Los Angeles studio and fully engulfed in the process of working with his hands. Now on this display at Ralph Pucci‘s LA gallery, the Oregon-born designer taps his subconscious to create sculptural jet-black furnishings.

In Stefan Bishop‘s current show at Ralph Pucci’s L.A. art gallery, open by appointment, Bishop has turned these creative impulses into a bold new series of consoles, shelves, tables, and mirrors. Raised in southern Oregon, the designer notices forms that spring from his subconscious reflects the woodland surroundings of his childhood.

What’s interesting is that pretty much all of my furniture design work stems back to shapes that are tied to archetypal images found in nature,” Stefan Bishop says.

In addition to their environmental references, both modern design collections are tied together through Stefan Bishop’s complex construction process, which begins with planks of ash, walnut, and poplar woods. They are then stacked or shaped and laminated, after which they are lightly charred and subsequently dyed black with pure India ink.

It creates a deeper rich, black,” he explains about his contemporary design pieces. “The last step is to finish them with a top coat of varnish or wax.
